Today we feature Kaya, one of Noah’s three kittens (I did say we’d talk about her later). Kaya’s story is not as happy as Fuzz’s story. It still makes me sad thinking about it.
Kaya was easily one of the spunkiest of the two combined litters of Raina and Noah. She had so much energy and such a zest for life! She was also, we discovered very quickly, a climber. We found this out when she persisted in climbing our pant legs when all the others had stopped. It was really cute … at first. As she grew and her claws grew stronger and sharper, it became a lot less cute. We had to persistently pull her off our pant legs and put her back on the ground. Over and over and over and over again. Ouch!
So I built a little climbing/play area for the cats, partially in the hopes that they would all love it and play on it, but mostly in the hopes that Kaya would substitute that for our pant legs!
Though she started out as being mostly dark grey, as seen in the first photograph, the more she grew the more her markings became visible. I’d never seen a cat with those types of markings! I know now those types of markings aren’t all that uncommon, but right then I thought they were so cool and so beautiful!
But, sadly, as curious a kitten as she was and as much energy as she had, one day she left and didn’t come back. We don’t know if she just got lost and maybe someone picked her up, or if she got hit by a car, or if she was eaten by a predator (we get owls, hawks, foxes, and coyotes roaming through every now and again).
Whatever may have happened to her, we miss her and can only hope she found someone to take her in.
This post is in memory of Kaya. May she never be forgotten.
Forget-Me-Not Friday is about pets we have lost, whether they’ve passed over the Rainbow Bridge, got lost and were never found, or had to be given up for one reason or another.
